As the digital transformation process advances, load carriers and transport packaging are also becoming increasingly smarter. They are evolving from mere transport containers to cyber-physical objects that communicate with superordinate IT systems.
Thanks to the interconnectivity of objects within production and logistics, the Internet of Things (IoT) is encompassing increasingly widespread segments of industry. Equipped with modern sensor technologies and digital services like Cloud solutions, real-world objects are connecting with virtual applications. This means that load carriers and transport packaging used in logistics are also evolving into cyber-physical objects.
